Figure 5: Inhibition of norepinephrine-induced contraction in isolated rat aorta by Phaleria macrocarpa extracts. (a) The percent relaxation in precontracted rat aorta treated with petroleum ether extract, chloroform extract, methanol extract, and water extract. (b) The percent relaxation recorded in aortic tissues that were treated with petroleum ether fractions PF-1 and PF-2 whereas (c) the same results for water extracts fractions WF-1, WF-2, WF-3, and WF-4. (d) The percent relaxation recorded in aortic tissues treated with subfractions SF-1 and SF-2 of WF-4 fraction. Values are the mean ± SEM; *, **, and ***indicate significant difference compared with control-treated group at P < 0.05, P < 0.01, and P < 0.001, respectively. SEM: Standard error of the mean
